Obstacles not always a hindrance to proteinsObstacles not always a hindrance to proteins
Rice researchers’ theory finds blocked path sometimes speeds DNA sequence search
Proteins are little Olympians in the games of life, racing around cells to trigger critical processes through interactions with specific genes. Sometimes they’re sprinters, sometimes hurdlers. But they generally find their genetic targets, whatever the obstacles. (December 10, 2015)
